NYCSHP held its September BOD at the Hospital for Special Surgery. President, Dr. Karen Berger, welcomed members and began the meeting with an ice breaker to better acquaint everyone around the room.
Dr. Berger highlighted her goals, especially about getting all NYCSHP members involved in the grassroots lobbying committee. It’s vital for our chapter to advocate for the profession and to prepare members new to lobbying to become more involved with opportunities. Such opportunities include providing legislative updates at upcoming meetings and participating in legislative visits with Senate and Assembly members.
Each of the board of directors and committee chairs gave updates on their goals and upcoming events for the year. Members were encouraged to reach out to board of directors and committee chairs to join respective committees for upcoming events, particularly the grassroots lobbying committee.
